Epidemiology of Malaria in European Travelers
Malaria imposes an increasing risk to travelers, due primarily to the expansion of travel to highly endemic areas. Concomitantly, the spread of resistance to safe chemoprophylaxis and the diminished use of more efficacious drug combinations, because of toxicity, necessitates comprehensive and systematic appraisal of malaria risk . In order to develop optimal recommendations to protect European travelers, we need to classify who is at risk and why.
